Hello let me tell you a true story about a grown woman, an adult woman in her mid-thirties, who literally forgot what day of the week it was last Thursday, and therefore did not publish a link roundup. She’s the selfsame woman who, this very morning, forgot what time zone she resides in and was thus an hour late to her weekly Monday morning meeting. (In her flimsy defense, she lives in Arizona, where they don’t observe daylight savings and instead just swap timezones from Pacific to Mountain and back again forever.) Does this grown woman need to up her vitamin intake? Maybe sleep more? Dedicate one entire wall of her home to a large calendar, with her timezone clearly stated?
I don’t know. I truly do not know.
